At least twelve of the apprehended individuals are now facing prosecution for Estafa due to illegal re-contracting and subscription fraud. Others are facing cases of illegal sale of WiMax Modems and cable theft.

"We encourage everyone to only transact with legitimate sellers and distributors or go directly to any of the numerous Globe Stores to ensure that they only get quality services and after-sales support. And to those who have already fallen victim to illegal activities including cyber fraud, Globe will not hesitate to bring the perpetrators to justice", Atty. Froilan Castelo, Globe General Legal Counsel said.

"We would like to assure the public especially our customers that cybercrime investigation is now equally sophisticated and can yield results that will hopefully prevent similar occurrences from happening", Castelo added.

The above illegal activities have been widespread in the country ever since the demand for WiMax and cable services rose to fame.

In fact, as early as 2011, several fraudsters have already been arrested by Globe security and police authorities.

Fraudsters would sell hacked Globe WiMax modems to urban residents. They even go as far as website forums in order to gain customers.

Sometime in 2013, illegal sellers of hacked Globe WiMax modems were arrested in Nueva Ecija. In the same year, illegal distributors were caught in Cebu. (
